George Cukor's HOLIDAY


HOLIDAY (1938) Directed by George Cukor.  Katharine Hepburn, Cary Grant, Doris Nolan, Lew Ayres (95 min.)

These days, we tell our children to follow their dreams.  Not so during the Depression.  Free-spirited Johnny rubs his high society fiancee’s clan the wrong way when he says there are more important things than making money.  Grant and Hepburn’s sizzling chemistry kindle cinematic joy as they recognize each other as soul mates. Supporting eccentrics Edward Everett Horton, Jean Dixon, and Ayres as the alcoholic (secretly gay??) family heir complete the irreverent family circle. “Often underrated by comparison with The Philadelphia Story (both are based on plays by Philip Barry), but even better because its glitteringly polished surface is undermined by veins of real feeling, it is one of Cukor's best films” (Time Out).
